SWAMP LIFE: An Almanac by Glen Rounds

SWAMP LIFE: An Almanac

Email this review


The denizens of swamp land, their habits and their life cycles in relation to the seasons are described and pictured by Glen Rounds. His illustrations (50) are quite beautiful -black and white studies in line of the snapping turtle, the serpents and their neighbors. With the same style which readers will remember the well known naturalist-author-illustrator tells of the difficulties of learning to be a squirrel, detonates many of the fallacious legends concerning snakes and reptiles and on the whole makes the swamp a less fearsome place. He gives suggestions for those interested in observing life in the swamp.
